The words in the script can be viewed on a screen suspended above the stage or at either side of the stage depending on the set up for a particular venue. Supertitles are used to translate foreign languages in to English and are also helpful to people who have a hearing impairment.
Please note: Supertitled performances do not include sound effects, character identification or offstage noises. Not all speech will be supertitled.
As some of the screens may be at either side of the stage rather than above it, please tell the box office that you would like to be able to read the supertitles and they will book you an appropriate seat. Supertitles will be available from most areas but there may be some exceptions.
